Intelligent tools for automating Oracle tuning have made great progress in the past decade.  First we saw the Ion tool that reads STATSPACK and AWR data to spot hidden trends, there is a new software tool to analyze STATSPACK and AWR reports.

The free http://burleson-dba.com/SP/  web site is a true expert system where hundreds of decision rules were quantified and generalized to mimic an Oracle tuning expert.

Simply paste-in your STATSPACK and AWR report and see instant analysis that notes important exceptional conditions in Oracle performance.

This executing new tool is amazing and it's a great way to learn Oracle tuning, to see if your evaluation of the STATSPACK reports matches the statspackanalyzer tool.
